Broken Watches - Azriel Johnson

11/98

It’s eleven fifty-six on my broken watch
It’s the twenty-second day of some month
Time is standing still. Nothing’s going fast
My life is ebbing away

No time to waste or things to do
The clock will not move
Dead men tell not tales
Broken Watches keep no time

Antagonistic prick in my life
Hate this and want him to die
No time at this time, none ever
I’m stuck in an 11:56 world

No time to waste or things to do
The clock will not move
Dead men tell not tales
Broken Watches keep no time

Am I dead? Am I alive?
Do I care about anything?
Do I love anyone?
No time to answer

No time to waste or things to do
The clock will not move
Dead men tell not tales
Broken Watches keep no time

“For: Walt”
